Prof Andrew Godkin undertook his medical training in London, before moving to Oxford to start his research career, working with Profs Derek Jewell and Adrian Hill at the John Radcliffe Hospital. In 1999, he returned to London as a lecturer in medicine at St Mary’s Hospital where he combined his clinical and research interests working in the laboratory of Prof Peter Openshaw.

He took up a position as a consultant physician in the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, in 2002 and was made a reader in Cardiff University in 2008. His research centres on how the immune system can be manipulated to produce effective treatments for diseases, in particular cancer. He is currently undertaking a vaccine trial for patients with colorectal cancer.
